    I recently purchased a loose Armada Megatron.
    Pretty cool except for the legs. Did a bit of research on how to fix this and I really don't want to destroy a Cybertron Jetfire to give Megs new legs.
    (although I do think that any Decepticon leader would approve of it)

    Soooo... Scratchbuilding is the way to go.
    Can anyone help me with this one?

    I do have a broken bootleg Cybertron Optimus. Would see if I can salvage any limbs for this purpose, but let's say I have to mod this from scratch, is there any non-TF parts that I can use? Say, for the joints themselves? Any plastic parts that coincidentially match Armada Meg's legs?

    thanks guys!

    it lacks articulation.

    Try Industrial ball joints or other joint options, like hardware hinge systems!
